Just cause you spend the $30 and know the invoice, it dont mean the dealers gonna sell it to you at that price...Just bite the bullet and spend the $30 on the pricing info from Consumer's Reports or any other similar service. If you can't be bothered to invest $30 in researching a $70K purchase you're crazy.
I don't think Canadian dealers have got the glut of '08s left that those in the US do. Keep in mind, when the US economy tanked, auto sales were down ~40% YOY, in Canada the number was closer to 20%.Haha, that's true, I'll just have to get the report thing. I don't think they'll have any '08s left that are new, maybe I can get something in '09, but when I talked to the sale person last they were already trying to sell me a '10 model.
They might - after trading dollars. But at least you'll know what the dealer's true cost is and you can have an intelligent discussion about what a reasonable profit margin is.Just cause you spend the $30 and know the invoice, it dont mean the dealers gonna sell it to you at that price...
all good but when i was dealing on mine all the 08's that were left were demo's and test driversJanuary Data but I believe it has changed upward a little based on the current MSRP.
MSRP:65,300, Dealer Invoice ~59,400
MSRP: 69,400, Dealer Invoice ~ 62,900
General rule of thumb for Lexus' in Canada base models are usually 8-9% (Series I) and the higher end models are 10-11% (Series II). For example the base model RX has a low to mid 8 point mark-up while the highest loaded model is in the 10-11 point range at the dealer level as with the ISF above.
I would suggest you try and find an '08 as well considering the $7000 cash incentive. There are a handfull kicking around and usually the dealer will throw in a discount on top of TCI's cash incentive. You could probably walk away $10k off the sticker with under 100kms on the odo.
Good luck in your searches.
